Mcglone...
I guess you didn't attend too many shows from '79-85 when it seemed that Lost Sailor was played too often... I must have seen it 50 times in that era, but I admit I did miss it after it was retired.

I was also lucky enough to see Goodnight Irene adn If I Had The World To Give, I thought Irene should have been added as an encore.

I also never understood why Passenger was removed from the playlist after 12/81, to me it was one of the best 1st set tunes the boys ever played, it was raucaus, raw and energetic and I loved the power slide licks that Jerry would play on it.

Brother Esau was a tune that I really liked as well that the band never really seemed to get a real handle on and subsequently dropped, I thought it had a lot of potential.

I liked Brother Esau and I definately missed Lost Sailor.
What about "Bob Star"?
